As a UX Designer you’ll play a pivotal role in creating the user experience for the most innovative real estate CRM ever. You’re a talented designer who is obsessed with creating amazing products that change people’s lives.  You’re always exploring the latest and greatest technology, and you get insanely jealous when you see a web app that works smoother than yours. You love products that solve complex, real world problems, yet are simple, elegant and intuitive to use.  You will be a passionate advocate for the user, dedicated to the craft of design and excited about working in an agile, collaborative, dog-friendly environment!
 
What you do:
  • Collaborate within small cross-functional product teams to translate high-level requirements into concepts and elegant user experience design
  • Create prototypes, user task flows, and UI details that promote ease of use and optimize the user experience
  • Synthesize product requirements, technical constraints, user research and web analytics into efficient user scenarios and design solutions.
  • Work with product managers and engineers to perfect the user experience throughout the product development process
  • Present cohesive design approaches to a non-design audience (including business, product and technology teams)
  • Demonstrate a solid grasp of web design principles and good understanding of current web technologies (html, css, javascript).
  • Prioritize and manage work to adhere to critical project timelines in a fast-paced environment
  • Candidates must have a solid understanding of user-centered design principles, careful attention to detail, as well as ability to grasp multiple product requirements
  • Be the voice of the user at all levels of discussion; advocate for understanding of people’s needs; understand methodologies needed to gain that knowledge and use it to drive innovative useful change.
 
You Have:
  • 5 years of UX design experience with a proven track record of successfully shipped web and/or software applications.
  • Experience creating prototypes to demonstrate complex interactions (Axure skills preferred)
  • Previous experience working on CRMs
  • Experience integrating user research and behavioral analytics into design practices
  • Passion for emerging technologies, hunger to innovate and attention to detail
 
We’d love if you had these extras:

  • Focus on constantly improving design processes and methodologies
  • Able to spread your love for product design and inspire the team to create amazing experiences
